What Folks are Sayin' about Wireless Traps

"It saves time, saves money in all aspects.  With a traditional trap, the only way you know if you have hogs in it is to check it. With these traps, you don’t have hogs caught unless you’ve slammed the gate. It saves gas and with the way gas prices are I don’t see how it could even be feasible to trap hogs any other way other than this one. My favorite part is the convenience. I do everything from viewing the pictures to setting off my trap using my cell phone. There’s no telling how many times I’ve activated the trap while I’ve been having dinner at a restaurant."
- Cody Beavers
“Now, we can do other things and still trap animals. It makes us more efficient, and our employees don’t feel like they’re being punished by having to spend hour after hour sitting in a blind. Animals are creatures of habit. I can look at the photographs taken over a period of time and get a clear idea of when and where certain animals are.”
- John Harwood - The Circle H Ranch
“The ranch owners have installed motion sensor-triggered cameras at a watering site. When those high-headed cows and their calves come in to drink, they trigger the system, which sends an email with a photo to the ranch manager so he can identify the animals in the trap. If they’re the right cattle, he makes a phone call and shuts the gate behind them. Within 2 hours after the equipment was installed, the ranch staff trapped a group of cattle that the cowboys had been after for 3 months"

“Trapping wildlife in urban areas offers numerous challenges. While the residents want coyotes and feral hogs removed, they are not patient or forgiving if you accidentally catch their pets.” Having the ability to confirm what is in the trap offers is a big plus. In addition, remote monitoring and control helps make scheduling personnel easier. With traditional traps, personnel had to check them on a regular schedule, never knowing whether or not they would find something when they arrived. With remote monitoring and control, personnel can be dispatched to a specific trap only when it has been triggered. If I shut the gate, I know I have an animal in the trap. If I shut the gate, I know exactly where I’m going the next day. It takes the guesswork out of trapping.”
- Adam Henry - Urban biologist with USDA’s Wildlife Services
"I live 100 miles away fro the trap. I monitor activity inside the trap with my iPhone receiving email photos. My automated feeder is set for once a day at 9:00 PM for 30 seconds, corn. I have all sorts of animals visit the trap, and wait for the hogs to have their turn each night. As the sounder grows and the larger hogs appear.  I used my iPhone and determined when the most hogs were in the trap and then trigger the gate from my iPhone during the night. I then drive down to the ranch where I keep my trailer and loading ramp ready and get a trailer full on a regular basis. (usually 20 to 30 hogs per trapping)  I get a decent price for them from the feral hog buying stations throughout the counties. Lots of fun and easy to do……I'm going to be buying additional traps and CellGate automated systems."

"I have my old iPhone set to dial for photos, and dial to trip the gate (old iPhone, my son uses the App on his newer iPhone) either is fine. I get photos from email from the camera".
- Bryan Wells
